Halo Lorecast Episode 1!

19 March 2017 - 05:33 PM

Hello everyone. A couple of weeks ago, some great minds (not the greatest) in the Halo Community that are well versed in the extended universe came together to talk about said universe in general and sort of provide a podcast for listeners to catch up on the current timeline of the Halo franchise. 

 

In attendance were myself on behalf of our lovely site 343iCF, VinWarrior of Halo Team Assemble, Adv Jones with the Halo Archive, HaruspexOfHell from Progressive Halo, and Toa_Freak AKA Halo Canon. We talk about the current extended universe entries along with the games' main story lines and bring anyone who hasn't read or played up to speed.

 

 

There is a link dump in the description but I'll throw one here because our site uses an embedded player.

 

We start with the latest anthology of short stories, Fractures, at 1:48.

 

Talk about the graphic novel Tales From Slipspace at 9:15.

 

Discuss Cortana at 18:00.

 

Review some great pieces of art from the masterpiece Halo: Mythos at 38:40.

 

Answer the questions we received on Twitter at 43:30.

 

Spoil Halo Wars 2 for people who haven't and aren't going to play it at 56:50.

 

And conclude with the current state of the Haloverse at 1:11:40.

 

 

 

Hope you enjoy!


CvC Community Event Results!

12 March 2017 - 08:07 PM

Thank you to everyone who joined. We had our best-of-five series matches with HaloCustoms last weekend and here are the results: 

 

On Friday we swept our friends on the virtual battlefield 3-0 winning Slayer on Perseus (a much better version of Pegasus made by no god anywhere), Slayer on Contract (remake of Construct from Halo 3), and Battle Golf on Gingerbread Falls. It was also a 3v4 with the team consisting of only @Kakashi_Hatake , @GermanShepherdD , and @Twam

 

Our staff and members played valiantly against our frenemies and came out with a win on the first day of the event. Find the full recap with great screenshots on HaloCustoms in their full Friday recap.

 

 

Then on Saturday, the corrupt but handsome @Psychoduck recruited a special guest to kick our butts all the way to the Ark (outside of the known galaxy). Duck got famous streamer and former competitive Halo player Vetoed to play for his team along with BTBnet admin Matclan. This was a much closer series where we were taken to a game 4. Needless to say Vetoed absolutely REQ'd us but I had a trick up my sleeve as well and called in another streamer, SMELI5A. She may not be as skilled as Vetoed but she definitely increased our chances. Results:

Get the full recap from Saturday with player stats from HaloCustoms in their Saturday recap.

 

 

And on Sunday we ended up winning as well giving us three straight wins in our friendly competition with HaloCustoms. I don't have a recap from that day but we won. GG. 

 

 

Be sure to visit Halocustoms.com to meet some cool people and have fun with their innovative lobby system if you're looking for games. That's also where I watch almost all of my streams.

To sign up, message "LL Kool D" around the start of the event.

 

VOTE BELOW FOR ANY MAP AND GAMETYPE.

Halo Wars 2 Discussion Thread

14 February 2017 - 05:07 PM

halo-wars-2.jpg

 

With Halo Wars 2 just around the corner I figure it's more than appropriate to start this thread up. Feel free to discuss anything about Halo Wars 2 in this thread from multiplayer modes to the campaign. 

 

*PLEASE APPROPRIATELY MARK SPOILERS WITH THE SPOILER TAG*

If you're unsure what you're saying is a spoiler, put it in the spoiler anyway.

 

If you want to be spoiled then be spoiled by no one other than Haruspis, who received a copy early of Halo Wars 2 and has written a detailed blog post on his impressions of the campaign here.

 

Everything else can just be written below. Share your hopes, strategies, and thoughts.


Fantasy Short Story/Novel Adaptations From The Haloverse

11 January 2017 - 07:03 PM

I just finished reading Halo: Fractures and found so many of the stories to be compelling. They created vivid mental images of their tales. The authors from the short story anthology are great writers from previous Halo novels like Tobias Buckell (Cole Protocol), Kevin Grace (Hunters in the Dark), Joseph Staten (The Flood), and Troy Denning (Last Light). 

 

So many good stories by actually good writers gives the extended Halo Universe amazing depth and potential. Even Brian Reed's story added mass to a weightless threat discovered at the end of Halo 5. He painted the scene of the destruction on Earth after the Guardian attack and the decisions that would need to be made after impressively well. 

 

So just list a short story or novel that you'd like see adapted and try to list actors/actresses that you'd like to see casted as which characters as a bonus. Add some pics so we can get a feel for what you're imagining. 

 

I'll post my own later when I'm out of work
